Ofcom opens up fixed wireless so that ‘anyone can build a network’

Ofcom has published a five-year plan for fixed wireless adoption in the UK. Essentially the UK regulator has come round to the idea that it’s necessary to treat all those little bits and bobs of spectrum, used mostly for fixed point to point applications, as a valuable resource to be managed to do the most good, rather than be viewed as almost marginal, niche cases which have to be carefully controlled. In addition it looks to high frequency public spectrum as being a critical part of the next generation, 5G-led wireless ecosystem too.

Pre-5G neutral host backhaul network in London’s Square Mile

Multipoint-to-multipoint

CCS Metnet is providing neutral host microwave backhaul for a new ultra-fast, next-generation wireless network in the Square Mile – the world’s number one financial centre. The ambitious project – which includes the single biggest Wi-Fi investment in the City to date – was delivered in a fast and seamless deployment, and is now providing high-speed, high-performance wireless services to businesses, residents and visitors across London’s iconic business hub.

Small Cell World Summit 2018 Event Report

The backhaul star of the show was CCS, who won an award for their urban streetpole mounted mesh network deployed in Central London. They have developed a 60GHz version that handles up to four sectors with a total throughput of 12Gbps. This is undergoing trials with a small number of operators in US, Europe and Asia. Their platform is based on BluWireless 60GHz technology, who were separately exhibiting with two parallel links carrying multi-Gbps channels without being affected by interference.

Steve Greaves, CEO, explained how this huge bandwidth can be split to support multiple network slices, each for a different application or network operator.

Small Cell Backhaul

By far the star of this section of the show was CCS latest product, a 60GHz mesh backhaul system. Building on the system design of their existing 30GHz mesh backhaul which we reported in action in the City of London, it uses chunks of 2GHz bandwidth within the 14GHz available in that unlicensed segment. With a 300 degree field of view, four separate transceivers each capable of 3 to 4 Gbps, each node can handle some 12 Gbps. CCS cleverly select which frequency to use – the lower half of the spectrum gets absorbed by water which helps restrict range and supports more frequent reuse while the upper half achieves longer range. Hundreds of metres are quite feasible which is perfectly adequate in the dense urban environments it is designed for.

CCS Lights Up New Year's Eve at Coca-Cola London Eye

CCS’ Metnet 28 GHz self-organising microwave backhaul helped to deliver a stunning New Year celebration display at the Coca-Cola London Eye on New Year’s Eve. Leveraging the Metnet system already powering its high-speed WiFi services on the wheel, Merlin Entertainments was able to – for the first time – directly stream live control to the lights, enabling perfect timing synchronisation of lights, music and fireworks. Previously, a program would have to be uploaded earlier in the day with the hope that the program would trigger at the correct points in the show. This would often result in the lights being a few seconds out of sync. With Metnet, the result was truly spectacular – with none of the noticeable delays or timing lags usually seen at large event displays. Enjoy the amazing River Thames show here:
